Outdoor Learning

All of our Prep School pupils are encouraged to play in their dedicated, secure outdoor space during morning and afternoon breaks. The outdoor space is also used for supervised activities, involving playing with water, sand and some ball games. Pre-prep children are encouraged to plant and grow their own seeds.  The School has secure grounds and children are regularly taken, in supervised groups, inside the School grounds to learn about the seasons of the year, by collecting autumn leaves, observing insects and so on.

Our Forest School Programme takes the classroom outside into our private parkland grounds at our Chilton Cantelo site under the experienced, watchful eye of our qualified Forest Leader.

Pupils learn about their environment and develop practical skills, while enhancing their knowledge and skills in cross-curricular activities involving subjects such as  Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Humanities and the Arts.

The pupils also learn to work in groups and to develop a respect for their environment which they share with other living things.

Older Prep School children will learn how to use tools safely for cutting and shaping wood as well as how to prepare a campfire.
